I tried and tried and nothing, I called HP and got no where with them. They are in India and there answer is to format the hard drive and reinstall windows.
Gee why did'nt I think of that.
Anyway I looked around and found out about BITS, I tried starting it and I get an error starting it. There error tells me to contact the hardware vender.
Again I am stumped.
I did find a batch file in the net that re registers alot of files, tried that, did not work.
I have windows xp with sp2 installed. I have read about problems with sp1 and bits, but mine came with sp2 preinstalled.
Yes I could just format and re-install and that would fix it, but I don't want to.
Is there some other way to download windows updates that does not use bits?
